of the state speech by governor david heineman. then after that president obama and represent roby. >> i think the women themselves, in many cases, were interested in politics but had no vehicle to express that in their own lives so they were attracted to men who were going to become politically active or already politically active. >> each of them i find intrigue gigging precisely because they are so obscure. i think half of these women probably would be almost totally unrecognizable to most men and women on the street. >> c-span premieres its new series "first ladies, influence." we're exploring the lives who served as first lady from martha washington to michelle obama. season one begins monday night on c-span, c-span radio and c-span.org. watch the program earlier in the day live at 2:00 p.m. on c-span. >> nebraska governor gave his state of the state address. he gave the plan to lower income tax and corporate income taxes. this is about 20 minutes. >> thank you very much. mr. president, mr. speaker, members of the legislature, tribal chairmen, distinguished guests, friends and fellow nebr
. for two reasons, ali. first of all, president obama is in the sweet spot of his presidency, the moment of maximum leverage that occurs for a president right after re-election. basically around 18 months at the start of a second term where a president can push through almost anything he wants. second of all, he's positioned to pull a nixon in china. just as only a committed anti-communist like nixon could go to china, someone like a pragmatic aggressive like president obama could appeal to his base and still get tough entitlement cuts through as part of a grand bargain. this is a moment of rare opportunity but it takes presidential leadership and that, frankly, has been lacking. >> one approach that republicans have put forward is the idea of a balanced budget amendment. >> the real cause of our debt is that our government has been spending $1 trillion more than it takes in every year. that's why we need a balanced budget amendment. >> republicans, margaret, are not blameless in this, bush era tax cuts, wars in afghanistan and iraq are major drivers. the spending cuts that a balanced bu
donough president obama's me chief of staff, who i presume has brought many answers with him this morning. nice to have you. >> thanks for having me, bob. i'm really looking forward to it. >> schieffer: the sequester these draconian across-the-board spending cuts that are supposed to go into effect march 1. it appears to me that this is anything to happen. it looks to as if both the president and the congressional leaders have given up on each other. can this possibly happen? >> well, we've not give know up on this, bob and the reason we've not given up on this is because it's going to have a real impact, on middle-class families-- >> schieffer: it's going to have an impact on everybody. >> across the board. the lens through which the president is going to see the fight is what is the impact on middle class family and the kind of investments we expect for the economy to grow from the middle out. so our hope is that this does not happen, that we choose-- rather than make this an ideological fight as it appears to be right now among some on the republican caucus, we just do a balanced approach to
obama announced all u-s troops will be out of afghanistan by the end of next year. and with veterans coming back, kate loewen looks more at what san jose state has to offer. you may have seen flyers around campus about a petition for a central meeting place in the new student union for veterans. i learned more about their resources in comparision to other csu's. ">>>for san jose state student military veterans like jon paul, adjusting to civilian life is proving to be difficult. jon paulw when i went into the military, i thought i knew everything about the world. seeing combat, seeing the things that i've seen, and having my friends hurt the way they were totally changed my life outlook. jon paul is a marine combat veteran who served in several deployments to iraq. he's found as a student at sjsu that gaining access to resources offered, he must go to several different places across campus. he feels that the current situation for sjsu veterans is disappointing. jon pauli i think that we've been deprioritized, i guess. they've put us on the back burner. i don't know if its politically
of nebraska and every state in america is required by law to implement president obama's new federal health care law. the financial impact is enormous. it will cost more than $170 million in federal and state funds over the next eight years to implement just the technology and administration required by the new federal health care law. and even more significant, it will cost the state of nebraska $72 million in new general funds in this budget for the growth of the current medicaid program as a result of the new federal health care law. that's $72 million in new general fund spending for president obama's new federal health care law -- money that should be going to state aid to education or higher education. i am also very concerned about federal economic policy and its impact on nebraska. unlike the federal government, we don't spend money we don't have. we balance our budget in state government and our family budgets by controlling spending, not by raising taxes. nebraskans are very careful and conservative in how they spend their money. this conservative approach has led to positive nati
's wrong with the company and president obama mrs. pelosi, steny hoyer and top harkin, all prominent democrats have all said "we don't have a spending problem in this country." they think what's wrong with our country is we tax too little. well most americans watching today, bob don't think we have a trillion-dollar deficit for four consecutive years because we taxes too little. they know it's because we spend too much. >> schieffer: but isn't what you're saying, governor, what people say is wrong with washington. here we go again. governor barbour says it's all the fault of the democrats will and the president says it's all the fault of the republicans and i want to know where there is some ground rathe 22 sides could get together and get something done. is there such a place? >> you're going to see on the sequester-- i believe you're correct the sequester will go into effect. >> schieffer: you do think? >> i do, and there are a lot of republicans that don't like parts of it, but they understand we've come to a point where we've got to take action about spending. and the democrats s
. >> . >> the pushing the president clinton mum to the max. president obama repeating calls today for a 24% hike in the federal minimum wage to $9 an hour. some folks here say don't raise it, get rid of it and that will really help jobs. are they right? hi, everyone, i'm brenda buttner, this is bulls and bears. let's get right to it. here they are the bulls and bears this week, gary b smith. john layfield. jonas max ferris along with larry glazier and caroline. gary b, forget hiking the minimum wage, you say scrapping it altogether is how to get better paying jobs. >> states with the highest minimum wage in many cases, higher than the current minimum wage that the fed, federal government outlines has higher unemployment than those states with lower minimum wage. look, it's simple economics, something which this current administration doesn't understand. when you raise the cost of labor, you have a surplus of labor, that's true in comments, stocks, whatever. when you have a surplus of labor, what do you have, brenda? you have higher unemployment and simple as that, this administration doesn't und
